Our Preschool Media Gallery

Over the years, parents and staff have captured several photos of the preschool in action.  We share these with you for two reasons, first to see the wonderful memories that are created, and second for you to see how our facility and grounds allow for an effective place to nurture and educate your child.

Little Cherubs Testimonials

Read what our parents have been saying about Little Cherubs Christian Preschool:


“Little Cherubs Christian Preschool is both a nurturing and stimulating preschool.  Our daughter is learning social skills like sharing, taking turns and following directions all through play.  The classroom has a variety of play areas that appeal to all kids.  The 3 year olds class has an appropriate amount of structure that allows the kids to learn how to transition between activities and focus on a lesson.  Daily activities may include painting, baking, show-and-tell and going for a nature walk outside on the church grounds.  We especially like that our daughter is learning bible stories and learning about God.  The teachers really enjoy working with the children.  They get to know the families, not just the students.  The teacher provides a daily feedback sheet which lists the activities that occurred, what was served for snack and specific notes on my daughter.  Little Cherubs is a great place for a child to begin their school years.”

Laura Kelly – Cheshire, CT


“The Little Cherubs Christian Preschool in Cheshire is the best.  Highly recommended.  The teachers truly care about the children.  Teachers are certified.  The curriculum prepares them for Kindergarten within a Christian setting.  Student to teacher ratio is great.  A small class is bright and spacious with many stations.”

Rachel Johnson – Cheshire, CT


“My daughter was a student in the Little Cherubs Christian Preschool in 2012-2014.  She liked this place and the teachers taught the children in a very caring way.  Joanne Holstein gave me a personal report on what my daughter was doing for every class, which is awesome.  My daughter learned in cooking “lab”, she enjoyed the cookies/ food they baked together, and introduced the food to our family.  When she graduated, she knew how to spell her full name, memorize her address and phone number (which is important) and sang a song from “Frozen” movie.  She enjoyed learning bible lessons and sang songs along with the pastor of the church.  The facility itself is spacious and bright. On warmer days, the children can go out to play in the yard behind the building (which is very big and nice) and explore the nature.”
